PATRICK TOURVILLE- Patrick is a consummate storyteller. With four decades of experience, his career started at age 17 in Dallas when he won his first national film award and received a grant from PBS to start his filmmaking journey. His work has garnered numerous prizes including Tellys and Addys, awards from the International Advertising Association, a Clio nomination and many film festivals. While having experience across a broad array of traditional marketing and advertising disciplines, Patrick has thrived in the documentary or real people format and has always sought alternative ways to reach an audience . While working in Los Angeles in the nascent days of home video, he formed Music Clinic with legendary drummer Russ Kunkel. Music Clinic produced hybrid music videos with both performance and instruction, featuring performers like Joe Walsh and Bill Payne of Little Feat. The following year he formed Main Street Home Video to produce and distribute educational programming in the burgeoning market of corporate sponsored home video. While residing in Maine in the nineties he formed Public Service Media to bring Washington DC nonprofit advocacy groups together with corporations to expand reach for the non-profit and provide socially-conscious branding for the corporation. In 2006 he returned to Texas to explore the interactive television opportunities of Video on Demand (VOD) with Time Warner Cable. He created Publik Music on Demand, a 24/7 music channel airing in four Texas markets. In 2011 he produced and directed his first feature film, OK Buckaroos, a documentary about the life of legendary outlaw country singer/songwriter Jerry Jeff Walker. In 2014 Patrick relocated back to Maine.
